No truth to Huka Lodge
claims by Peters
Land Information Minister
Maurice Williamson says claims made by New Zealand First
leader Winston Peters today that Huka Lodge, in Taupo, has
been sold to Chinese interests are not true.
Overseas Investment Office has spoken to Huka Lodge director
and shareholder David McGregor, and he has confirmed no sale
has been made or is being considered.
Huka Lodge was last
sold in 2003, following Overseas Investment Commission
approval, when a Labour Government was in power.
